Garrulous auteur Quentin Tarantino continues to piss off the police by saying rational things. After participating in a rally to address police brutality in October, Tarantino earned the ire of police unions; the Fraternal Order of Police, which sounds like something out of a Max Fischer play, subsequently made a vague threat that "something could happen" to the voluble filmmaker, which is an uncomfortably ominous statement by a police organization to make. But the filmmaker continues to speak about police brutality and abuse of power: while promoting his upcoming western The Hateful Eight on Saturday, Tarantino said, "You're not going to have the police force representing the black and brown community if they've spent the last 30 years busting every son and daughter and father and mother for every piddling drug offensive that they've ever done, thus creating mistrust in the community." He went on, "You should be able to talk about abuses of power. You should be able to talk about police brutality and what, in some cases as far as I'm concerned, is outright murder and outright loss of justice, without the police organization targeting you in the way that they have done me." The Hateful Eight, which deals with murder and outright loss of justice pretty graphically, comes out on Christmas.
